A recent RV magazine article (don't remember which magazine) on doing laundry while on the road showed a picture of pants hung up to dry with forms inside. I remember these forms from the 50's and have not seen them since. They are simple metal frames that are inserted into wet pants/slacks before the item is hung to dry. Does anyone have a name, or better yet, a source for this item?

The Vermont Country Store has them.

This is a good place to find all kinds of "old-timey" stuff.

Wow!!! Now they even come with built-in hangers.

Such progress in the last fifty years.

I know this sounds crazy but, you might go up to Ebay and do a search for "pant stretchers" and see what comes up there. Sometimes you find it and sometimes you don't.

Carol Wright Gifts also has them. I think they are cheaper here than the Vermont Country store.

This post did indeed shake up my memory also. I remember both my mother and grandmother using those many years ago. I recall just what they looked like. Will have to check with my mom, she might still have some.

what a flashback ...

when I was in living in the dorm while in college I used these gizmos after washing my cords ...

remember how the cords went "swish swish" when you walked in them when they were newly laundered ...

My mom used these when I was in high school. That was a couple of years ago. They worked pretty well after you lined up the creases.

Nothing but old people like me on this forum. Just you wait they will come in style now and be called 60's style.
